Two projects from Zome Geometry

For today’s math project I asked the boys to pick a project from George Hart and Henri Picciotto’s Zome Geometry:

My younger son picked a project about “Rhombic Zonohedra” which led to a terrific discussion about quadrilaterals and 3d geometry:

Ny older son picked a project on stellations of a dodecahedron. He was a little confused by the directions, but sorting out the confusion led to a great discussion.

I wish every kid everywhere could have the chance to play around with a zometool set.
